The uterus or womb is the organ of gestation or pregnancy. [SNH p.275]

Herbal Aids:

Chaparral for Prolapsed Uterus: Use the infusion as a douche. [SNH p.71] Chaparral tea (not bitter): See formula using chaparral, elder flowers and peppermint. [SNH p.71]

Bayberry for Hemorrhage: Bayberry is an excellent tonic for the uterus (especially during pregnancy), and is a valuable agent for helping arrest hemorrhage of the uterus, bowels or lungs. When used with cayenne, it is very effective in reviving the heat in the body and in inducing diaphoresis. [SNH p.131]

Bayberry for Hemorrhage: Use the infusion or decoction alone, or in combination with suitable stimulants (cayenne, ginger, etc.). [SNH p.132] Decoction: See formula using bayberry root bark and distilled water. [SNH p.132]

Inflammation of the Uterus: See formula using raspberry leaves and myrrh. [SNH p.146]

Dr. Shook's Healing Douche for Prolapsed or Enlarged Uterus: See formula using raspberry leaves, sandalwood oil, Irish moss and glycerine.[SNH p.146]

Inflammation of the Uterus: See formula using White pond lily, comfrey root, slippery elm bark, uva ursi, wild yam root, licorice and cayenne. [SNH p.166]

Prolapsed Uterus, Flaccid Vagina and Uterus: See formula using uva ursi, squaw vine and dandelion root. [SNH p.261]

Hemorrhaging: A hemorrhage occurs in the lungs, stomach, uterus, or nose--flowing fast--just take a teaspoonful of cayenne in a glass of extra-warm water, drink it down, and by the count of ten the bleeding will stop. Instead of all the pressure being centralized, it is equalized, and the clotting becomes more rapid. Whether the bleeding is internal or external, a teaspoon of cayenne taken orally in a glass of hot water will stop the bleeding quickly. For the lungs, a vapor bath, along with the warm cayenne infusion will be very beneficial. [SNH p.409]

Jogging and a Prolapsed Uterus: All patients should do some jogging, which is a bouncing motion. This helps to improve circulation, tone the organs, and slough off the dead cell accumulations faster. Each person should work up to a mile of jogging a day, but start out with one-fourth mile or less. Never jog to the point of exhaustion because all the good that is done each day will be undone as a result of overexertion. If for some reason the jogging cannot be done outside, do it inside the house in front of an open window. This will especially vibrate the peristaltic colon muscle and give it tone, will revive the uterus from a prolapsed state in the female, and help heal the prostate in the male. [SNH p.526]

Female Reproductive: Dr. Christopher's Herbal Aid for Female Reproductive Organs:  This is an amazing combination of herbs to help aid in rebuilding a malfunctioning reproductive system (uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, etc.). Over the years herbalists and patients have seen painful menstruations, heavy flowing, cramps, irregularity, etc., that have been helped and the patient now has a painless menstrual period, good menstrual timing, and a new outlook on life by using these aids to readjust the malfunctioning areas. The female corrective formula consists of golden seal root, blessed thistle, cayenne, cramp bark, false unicorn root, ginger, red raspberry leaves, squaw vine, and uva ursi.

Recommended dosage is one cup or 2 capsules or tablets morning and evening or three times a day if desired, six days a week for as long as required to get results desired. We have seen many severe cases who have had many years of suffering cleared up in ninety to 120 days. Some get relief sooner, some take longer--no two cases are alike. This is a food to rebuild the malfunctioning organs. [HHH p.190]

Yellow Dock Combination: Dr. Christopher's Yellow Dock Combination:  As an aid in prolapsed uterus, bowel, or other organs, to assist in giving relief, make concentrated tea (simmer down to half its amount) of six parts oak bark, three parts mullein herb, four parts yellow dock root, three parts walnut bark or leaves, six parts comfrey root, one part lobelia, three parts marshmallow root. Inject with a syringe (while head down on slant board) into vagina, 1/4 to 1/2 cup or more; or rectum, one cup or more; for prolapsus or hemorrhoid problems and leave in as long as is possible before voiding. Dose suggested is one fourth to one cup, one or more times in a day, and drink one fourth cup in three fourths cup of distilled water three times a day. When the tea is injected into the abdominal area and while on the slant board, knead and massage the pelvic and abdominal area to exercise the muscles, so the herbal tea (food) will be assimilated into the organs. [HHH p.192]

Goldenseal: For prolapsed uterus and prolapsed rectum, a small injection of the infusion can give results. One should remember that taking it internally can cause uterine contractions, so it should not be used during pregnancy, except as aforementioned. [UW-Golden Seal]

Gravel Root: Gravel Root is said to help with problems in the genital tracts. When there is impotence, Gravel Root can help tone and heal the system. It controls chronic irritability of the womb and will help clear up atony of the womb. It can help prevent habitual abortion if it is due to a prolapsed, retroverted uterus or to debility resulting from chronic inflammation of the area (Felk:741). [UW-Gravel Root]

Kelp: Kelp, as might be expected, is also of use in the female organs. It will help tone up a weak uterus and help produce a more healthy baby, as the balanced minerals will be supplied fully with the use of Kelp. [UW-Kelp]

Squaw Vine: By far and away the most extensive use of this herb is to help assist in pregnancy and childbirth. Combined with red raspberry leaf tea, it is an excellent way to strengthen the uterus during pregnancy and facilitate, according to Kloss, "a wonderfully easy delivery" (Klo:316). It is especially useful taken several weeks before the baby is due. [UW-Squaw Vine]

Bayberry: Bayberry is reputed to positively influence the uterus and all the female functions. It is the one dependable herbal aid in uterine hemorrhages (Cly:60), whether due to abortion, miscarriage, or afterbirth. The tea may be taken internally and the uterus may also be packed with sterile cotton saturated with the decoction. A weak tea may be used as a douche for amenorrhea or atonic leucorrhea, using the tea or the tincture internally as well (Felk: 1294) A douche similarly will help control vaginal discharge (Tie:79). Bayberry tea will strengthen and restore a prolapsed uterus, and will induce better contractions during childbirth. It will moderate the flow of lochia after birth (Cly:61 ). [NL 5-5]


1. Tipped Uterus and Other Major Female Problems Solved: Dr. Christopher always checked his patients with iridology before advising them. A lady came to him, aged about 45, asking for a reading to help with her condition. He saw that she had a prolapsed transverse colon which had dropped to a point where it tipped her uterus and pinched her bladder, and she was having a very serious trouble there. She had problems with the ovaries, with infection in both of them, and she was troubled with vaginal drainage. In addition, she had one breast that was badly infected, which might necessitate having part of the breast removed if she had asked another doctor for treatment. After the reading, Dr. Christopher asked why she had come to him and what she wanted him to do. She said that she had just spent three days in a clinic, where they had verified everything he had read from her irises, but they wanted her to go to the hospital immediately and have the uterus removed and the bladder stitched up to the spinal cord area, and also have her breast removed. She was frightened of all this cutting, so she wanted to find help in some other way.

She promised that she would stay on the program that Dr. Christopher advised. She took the female corrective [Female Reproductive] and hormone-balancing combinations, [Hormonal Changease] used the vaginal bolus [V.B.] six nights a week, flushing out each morning with the slant board routine, [Yellow Dock Combination] massaging 15 to 20 minutes a day on the abdominal and pelvic area while the tea was inside. She was also to use the Three Oil Massage over the abdominal area, and go on the three-day cleanse and mucusless diet. In addition, she was to drink a gallon of steam-distilled water a day, and plenty of red raspberry leaf tea. She kept her bowels clean with the lower bowel formula [Lower Bowel], and kept the bloodstream cleaned up with the Blood Stream Formula tea.

Dr. Christopher did not see her again for six months. When she came to see him this time, she bounced in, not dragging as she had before, a totally different woman, much happier and healthier. She had no operations, and yet her prolapsed transverse colon had gone back into place, and her uterus and bladder had gone back into position. She was feeling like a new woman, and she did indeed have a new system by following through with the entire herbal problem. [EWH p.112]

2. Lady with a Multitude of Problems: A lady called Dr. Christopher in Salt Lake City from Provo, Utah, saying that her daughter had flown in from out of town, extremely ill. She was afraid that she was going to die, so she had come to her mother to take care of her. She asked if he would come and read the young woman's eyes. When he arrived, the young woman ridiculed him, and said she thought it was a bunch of crazy ideas that her mother had, and she wasn't going to let him look into her eyes. So Dr. Christopher bowed out and left.

Nearly a month went by, and the lady from Provo asked him to come again, that the daughter was so sick that she was frightened and would talk with him.

When he came, they told him that they had tried the best doctors they could find, but no one could help the girl (Dr. Christopher never said what the problem was, however). He gave her an eye reading and she would remark, "Who told you that!" Each thing he told her was the same thing that the doctors had diagnosed. When he finished, she said she was still dubious about the natural program, but that the reading was so accurate, he must have something good. She agreed to follow the natural program. She was too sick to even get up and walk.

So they started off gradually on the Incurables program, using juices to rebuild the body. Before many weeks had passed, she came to Dr. Christopher's classes and became quite a faithful student. She even began to study iridology and became good at it. She watched her own eyes and could see the healing taking place. She had been told, though she had been married for some time, that she could never have a baby because of an immature pelvic area and an underdeveloped uterus, as well as other problems in her reproductive system. By using the mucusless diet and herbs to rebuild her body--the female corrective [Female Reproductive] and the hormone-balancing combinations [Hormonal Changease]--and doing the exercises they advised, even these problems began to heal.

Eventually Dr. Christopher got a call from her husband on the West Coast; he was angry. It was a call of abuse, accusing the Doctor of keeping his wife up in Utah when she should be down with him. He was an electrical engineer, with a very important job, and felt he needed her with him. Dr. Christopher told him his wife had been too sick to even sit up alone, but with the aid of the program and the mother's assistance, she was improving. He told the husband she would be home with him as soon as possible.

The man told Dr. Christopher he was one of the worst quacks there could possibly be, let out some abusive language, and slammed down the receiver.

The wife did heal eventually, and traveled home on her own, without anyone assisting her. She was an excellent housewife, and she showed so much improvement that the husband was astonished, because he figured she didn't have too much longer to live.

Best of all, she had two beautiful children, with natural childbirth, and although the husband was an electrical engineer with a high-paying job, he was so delighted with the results that he became a chiropractor. He delivered their two children. [EWH p.116]
